On May 1st, the Miami Marlins walked off the Philadelphia Phillies by a 2-1 final score on a Yadiel Rivera single into center field.
Starting pitchers Zach Elfin and Jarlin Garcia traded zeroes for four innings before Philadelphia broke through with a Rhys Hoskins RBI-single in the fifth. It took about one inning for the Marlins to get that one back on the power of a Justin Bour (5) home run over the right-center field fence.
The score remained knotted at one through the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings, as Nick Wittgren, Drew Steckenrider, and Tayron Guerrero each worked a scoreless frame. Junichi Tazawa earned his only win of the season, despite giving up a hit and two walks in the 10th. Cameron Maybin hit a one-out-triple to set the stage for Miguel Rojas, who was intentionally walked. Pinch-hitter Rivera lined a 1-1 pitch off Yacksel Rios for the win.
"My birthday is tomorrow, so it’s a pretty good gift. I feel great. That’s the job I’ve got, to come off the bench. Everybody on the bench has to be ready to do the job. I got it done tonight, and we got the win. – Rivera, as reported by Joe Frisaro on MLB.COM."
